Conference presentations

 

The opportunity to present at national and international events has been important for my PaR process. It helped me to communicate and document significant moments in my practice with a certain rigour and sensitivity, supported by accountability through public sharing. It also helped me to understand the particularity of my UK practice.

Performances

 

I list these performances as moments of significant sharing of music making and made as part of this research. There were many performances across this research, from informal sharings in the making context (the classroom or community setting for example), to more formal performances in concert venues. However, I do not list all since not all performances constitute research. The performances listed here are done so because they included significant sharing moments, both through playing and pre and post performance dialogue.
